Hi Robert,

We continue now with our work for February. For first 2 assignments I have decided to continue with superimposing with minor pentatonics only this time you will have to read the thread about major chords and record some superimposing with minor pentatonics over major type chords.

Here is your 1st and 2nd assignment

1st assignment :

- Read Superimposing with Minor Pentatonics over Major type chords post HERE
- After reading the whole thing with related link posts, think about choosing one chord and one approach you will use for recording!

2nd assignment :

- After you have chosen your approach, record a backing track with that chord and on top of that record yourself soloing with 1 or all 3 minor pentatonics corresponding with that mode!

Let me give you an example here. Lets say that you have chosen C major as your chord. Now you also chose C major to be treated as I (Ionian sounding). In that case you should play minor pentatonics from C major scale ( D ,E and A minor pentatonics) over C major chord in the background. 4th assignment asks you only to pick 1 but it also allows you to use all 3 pentatonics if you want to.
Backing track doesn't have to be anything fancy for this purpose. Just guitar playing the chord will do, if you want to add bass and drums to that to make it sound tighter go ahead!


Deadline for first two assignments is 14th of February.

Let me know if you have any questions.


Pedja

Hello Pedja

I will pick the F major Chord

Which means I will use as minor pentatonic:
II = G minor pentatonic
III = A minor pentatonic
VI = D minor pentatonic

Hello Robert,

You will try to do F Ionian in the case above, correct?

Hi pedja

It is rather difficult though, more difficult that I though.

I wanted to play some kinda theme but wasn't really the case.


So here is my first take. Attached File  back_in_F_maj_when_the_rain_falls.MP3 ( 3.5MB ) Number of downloads: 149


Will try do another one to see if I make some progression.

Do you have some tips how to build a main theme around this F maj chord?
- how to find the strong notes?
- how to break out of 1 box position and still play a good melody?

Cheers
Robert

Robert we continue with your remaining assignments for February. We have 3rd, 4th and REC assignment to cover.

3rd assignment and REC :

- Record Triads in a major scale series part 3 lesson found HERE
- Once you are done with video recording, upload it in REC part of forum for grading. Make sure that you include voting pool.

4th assignment :

- Record backing track using two random chords!
- Chords could have the same quality (two major chords for example) or different quality ( minor and then major chord).
- Chords don't have to be diatonic ( in other words you could record C and Eb major chords in backing track!)
- Over these chords, solo using superimposing with minor pentatonics!
- Once you recorded your solo, upload it in this thread.

For example... I choose to record two chords that have same quality, major chords. First chord is C major while second is Eb major. Duration is the same for both of the chords. Now what I need to do is decide what I want my C major and Eb major to sound like. I decide that I want C major to sound like Ionian, so I pick E minor pentatonic to solo over. In other case I choose my Eb major to sound like Mixolyidian, so I pick Bb minor pentatonic to superimpose over it. Now I record a solo using E minor and Bb minor pentatonics over C major and Eb major chords. The duration of solo is your choice!

Let me know if you have any questions.

Deadline for these assignments is 28th of February !


Pedja

Hi Robert

I am not feeling so well , down with the bad flu for week or more. Your REC is good but your timing is not like mine in the lesson but it rather sounds like Mike Knofner is playing my lesson wink.gif

Hi Pedja

I hope you will soon recover.


About the timing I don't understand what I did wrong because I had the guitarpro lesson file running along with me while I recorded the audio and I was exactly playing in that timing.

Maybe the reason is that I split my audio and video recording due to PC hardware memory problem: if I use both my video recording and audio recording at the same time the are not in synch: one of them is a bit later. So I tried to workaround that to do a audio first (with the guitarpro as backing so I play on time) and later do the video (and play along with the audio but I don't record that)


Cheers


p.s. I see is as a complement that it sounds like Mark Knopfler dry.gif

Hi Robert,

I am already feeling a bit better today, will try to do chat later on hope you can make it.

I meant it as compliment of course, your fingerstyle playing and rhythm made it sound like that. I will grade this take in REC very soon wink.gif

Hi Robert,

I haven't graded it yet and there needs to be at least 3 instructors that grade it. My internet is back to normal today so I will go ahead and grade it now. Sorry for the delay!
